What do you think of grinding in videogames? Do you find it relaxing, or a chore?


Depends on the game.
Some games the grind is fun or satisfying. Most games not so much.
I don't mind it so much when it's a optional late game grind in a game I already like with good gameplay. Just gives me a excuse to play a game I already like longer.

Hey there wizfrens where should I go to buy a working Sega Dreamcast system. Ebay, Amazon or Facebook marketplace? I plan on selling my Original Xbox and PS2 and go buy me a Sega Dreamcast system after playing it at my friend's house. My friend won't sell me his. So any ideas?

I don't recommend it unless you can mod it to run off an SSD or flash drive, the GD-ROM laser dies quickly. Not sure why you'd ever sell a PS2 tho (assuming it's modded), you can never run out of games for that system, unless you're one of those normalfags who only plays sports and shooting games or w/e


Shenmue was a game I wanted to play for over a decade.
From game magazines to footage to reviews, it looked right up my alley.
Then I finally got a emulator and played it.
Boy was I disappointed. It just wasn't fun to me. Not even a little bit, not once.
Maybe it's because games have come a long way or because I played games that did what it did but better in every way first, but god what a let down when I finally got my hands on it.

That said a ton of other Dreamcast games lived up to the hype and were fantastic.
Makes me sad that Sega isn't even close to a major player as a developer and publisher anymore.
Now they are very mid in the industry and a bit too reliant on nostalgia and Sonic fanboys.


it's cool how sega was spawned from ww2 literally milking american veterans of their money with coin slot machines stationed in japan. from the time of that to when they released sega genesis, that is the same amount of time from when sega genesis was relased to now. time is crazy


Shenmue was never fun, it had the novelty of being some kind of realistic sims like/walking simulator, people like was "whoa" because you could live inside the game, but the gameplay itself is boring as shit.


You should play D2. It's a great horror game. Sorta like an FPS/RPG hybrid.

Always seemed like a game designed around the mouse.

I remember first person stuff being really awkward on psp the little bit of it I tried.


I don't mind it, comfy in bed


wtf psp? that shit is like 15 years old how can it run minecraft? i remember i had a netbook from 2009 that could barely run the original minecraft alpha. how is that possible


it's a little buggy and it's limited to a little over 100 blocks in any direction, it uses a homebrew lamecraft but adds all the mechanics/recipes of regular minecraft
it's enjoyable because it seems like there's an end to your harvesting the environment at least as far as ores go, not sure what will come from my playthrough in these limitations
I'm using a random version I found online which is minecraft 3.0 https://archive.org/details/psp-minecraft.-7z


very neat

Back when I was a teenager I thought that I would be a PC gamer forever, because PC gaming was superior in my mind, probably had a little to do with 4chan memes too. But I am starting to change opinion, a console is looking more and more attractive now that I'm older. I don't really care about hardware anymore, it feels like things move so fast now, I don't even know what the newest hardware is and whatever it is it is way too expensive. I just wanna lounge on a couch and play games with a controller and not worry about hardware specs or compatibility or whatever, just have fun.

So the thing is, I don't know anything about console gaming, haven't owned one since the ps2. Is there anything I should know? What sort of gamers does each console cater to? What does each console offer? How long are console's life-spans these days? Is it too late to get in on the current gen? I would like anyone to describe their joys with console gaming.

>if Quake is so good then why is it dead

because Quake 2 is better


fake outrage trying to stir up drama again, back to kotakuinaction with you wild crab


That conflicts pretty heavily with my personal experience playing on pc.
It was exceptionally rare for me to come across someone cheating in elden ring online when I did pvp.

The actvision blizzard ip is complete garbage. Microsoft is risking to go bankrupt buying a shitty ip with old washed up games, with the only main game that is decent which is call of dooty, redundant and gets pumped and dumped. There is no way in the pits of hell that garbage is worth 70billion. All of their titles are on life support. The story lines of all call of duty are autistic cringe after bo1 no way in hell that garbage is worth 70 billion.

Wow that is such a reduction of standards.

>100s of good games in the context of competing with cod in level of being good
>Maybe 30 or 40 that are kinda tolerable for 4 hours


world of warcraft is extremely fun, why do people seem to hate it?


Trash after vanilla


it's literally the same formula, it's just that the tech is better and there is actually challenging content now


it's bait my man, crabs love being contrarian

Can we get sort of a Souls/Bloodborne general thread going? I am mostly a PC gamer, but I do own a PS4, and I just bought Bloodborne. I've been really playing it a lot, and currently I'm fighting the 'Witch of Hemwick.' Anyway, I really like the atmosphere of these games; lonely, foreboding, and depressing. Very much like the life of a wizard in the sea of normal-ness. I think my favorite Souls-like game has to be Dark Souls II. Although I actually never completed it, I had a lot of fun, and I thought that m+k was much more tolerable than it was for Dark souls I.

This thread is a simple thread that can be about Bloodborne, Dark Souls I,II or III, or even Dark Souls. It can be about any element, the lore or enemies, or anything. Also, any action RPG game recommendations are greatly appreciated.

I see you still have your wits about you. Will you cough up 30 souls? or go through PPU-compile hell? These are the choices left for the living, hah hah hah…

There are a few games that I feel like I'm always able to play, or that keep getting "rehashed."

E.g., SimCity. SimCity became SC 2k, 3k, SC 4, City Skylines, etc.. But for me, I don't really see the difference, so I can keep playing SC, and I always feel willing to pick it up.

Civ2 is another one. Yeah, they're up to Civ6 or 7 or whatever, but I remembering playing Civ3 and even Civ4 and thinking, "I don't really see the difference." And always kept playing Civ2. I do the same whenever I see any other 4X game.

Harvest Moon. Yeah, there's Harvest Moon: Whatever and its million titles. Yeah, there's Stardew Valley. But again, I don't really see the difference, so I kept playing Harvest Moon.

Morrowind, like I mentioned, might be different. There's so many mods and the game is so broken in such a fun way that I can play it forever. Yeah, there's Skyrim or Oblivion or even Fallout 3–but all those Bethesda games are so similar that I'm fine just playing Morrowind more.

Zelda a Link to the Past is another one. The whole "find the item to progress to get the next item" theme, especially with the randomizer, fits that itch for me. So when I played Zelda OOT or Skyward Sword or cetera, I just kind of felt like, "I've already played this game," and just kept replaying SNES Zelda instead.

Any new Metroidvania game just makes me want to go back and play the SNES Metroid instead.

If I feel like a platformer, just basic-ass NES Mario is fine for me. If I play any other 2D platformer, I just end up thinking/feeling, "I've already played this game," and lose interest and play NES Mario for a while again instead.

When I see a grand strategy game like EU4 or HOI4 or Viccy, I end up thinking, "This feels a lot like RotTK4," and I just end up replaying that over and over again instead.

Minecraft fits the same theme I'm talking about here. Then again, Minecraft doesn't have an "ending".

Last night I finished Kings Field 4. Compared to the previous games the biggest improvement is the sound and music, and the curiosity of what you might see or hear next keeps you going. I played at a relaxed pace and completed the game (including the optional stuff) in 20 hours, so it's relatively short. I would recommend it


that looks way better than the first one on ps1. thats all i played. how are the controls?


I remember dying in the first 5 seconds of that game. Fell right into the lava pit at the beginning because I didn't see it. Made me laugh.

I've never been able to force myself to play it properly though. Maybe a few hours at most. It just feels too "slow" for me, and I do enjoy janky old games more than modern stuff so it's definitely not that. Grats on finishing it

The controls are the same, but turning speed is slower than the previous games

I can understand that. The opening hours of the game are among the most challenging as you have no weapons and no health, and thanks

I'm really looking for another good rpg that is refreshing. I have already played games like Dark Souls, Skyrim, Dragons Dogma, SMT 5, ETC. What are you guys playing right now. Personalty I am playing through Persona 3. Its great so far. Still think SMT 3 is better though.

Metal Max

they give you more freedom than most jrpgs i can think of


pathologic 2, no more heroes


I don't know if those count as RPG, good games though


Kingdom come: deliverance.


I really enjoyed the game hybrid heaven.
It's unlike anything else I have ever played and one of the very few jrpg I have actually played all the way through to completion.

I'm looking for Youtube channels or just single videos which provide detailed analysis about the story/gameplay/game design/whatever of video games or just interesting theories, facts and other stuff like that. I don't really know how to explain it any better so I'm just gonna link a few examples.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vp4-9G47uF0 (Oblivion analysis)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2X2tiINl-X8 (Nier Automata analysis)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEj5FsBXFuM (Mass Effect indoctrination theory (there are three parts I believe))

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lk8tsK-FIdE (Pokemon Yellow glitch series)

I also like this guys game design videos

or pannenkoek2012's SM64 videos.

I just realized I'm being kinda vague here, I'm bascially searching for informative game videos. Any game goes.

I would've actually had respect for Mass Effect's narrative if the indoctrination thing were canon. That would've made the strawberry flavor of playstyle all the more badass. I don't get why it's not. It fits with the lore perfectly. That's the entire reason as to why the spectre of the first game went insane.


which one you talking about? i played the first one recently, and that's it so far, but i dont get what you're talking about.


Throughout the series, they constantly push this idea that Reapers slowly indoctrinate anyone in contact with them. Some become babbling lunatics while others, like Saren, are still given a large degree of autonomy because they can better aid the Reapers that way. From what I recall, they never formally explain why Shepard is immune. That largely caused fans to speculate about the trippy endings of the third game and ironically begin to believe that the Renegade ending was the true one because it's the only ending where the Reapers are annihilated, while the other two are about coexisting with the Reapers.
Of course, it was fans just seeing more to the story than there truly was. It wouldn't necessarily have been a shocking twist, but it certainly would've added a lot to the plot that Shepard was being controlled and progressively hallucinating more and more that he/she was successfully saving the galaxy (while actually accomplishing the direct opposite and doing exactly what the Reapers wanted him/her to do).
The endings kinda suck without utilizing that important plot point, but I guess it's less of a letdown if you treat the entire third game as the climax to the series. They tried to append the disappointment with a shittier slideshow than what you'd find on Fallout (which I think are quite good because they vary wildly and thoroughly explore what happens to all the different factions after the game is completed, which is not how it went with Mass Effect 3's newer endings).


I don't know, I just think it would've been poetic that Shepard fights so strongly against the same threat that Saren succumbed to, then potentially also succumbs to that same force. I think it would make a lot of sense, considering that the impetus for Shepard's rise into the Spectres was largely in response to Saren's treasonous actions. Time is a flat circle and all that.


maybe it's those artifact things he interacted with in the first. saren also interacted with them and they both are able to interact with reapers somewhat

need to play more but im still butthurt about mass effect 2 being a lame cover shooter instead fo the wacky rpg shooter like the first
